Accounting Senior Named 2014 Portz Scholar
A member of Eastern Kentucky University’s nationally prominent Honors Program is one of only four Honors students nationally to be named a 2014 Portz Scholar, a distinction awarded each year to the best Honors student research projects in the nation.
Sam Shearer, a senior accounting major from Winchester, was honored for his Fall 2013 Honors Thesis at EKU entitled “Truman Smith’s Reports on Nazi Militarism: A Study of Domestic Political Priorities and U.S. Foreign Policy Making in Franklin Roosevelt’s First and Second Terms.” He will receive a plaque and $350 stipend at the 2014 annual meeting of the National Collegiate Honors Council in Denver, Colo., on Nov. 8. Shearer will also present his work at the conference.
